Here is Thumbelina standing tall with one of the world’s tallest horses…..see how little she is while standing close to this tall horse. Incredibly tiny right?


Sadly, she was born with dwarfism, a very rare condition that isn’t bred. Have a close look at her foot, you will notice she has a shoe on it right? Now, because she has some issues walking, she was given special shoes that help her run or do all the horse gallop and also to play with all the other small horses she resides with. And apart from needing special shoes, Thumbelina is a healthy and strong horse.
